Cancer surgeon Dr Mutasim Mohammed further suspended over Aberdeen case

A doctor who left a cancer patient at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with a "deformed chest" has been suspended for another year.

Dr Mutasim Mohammed was banned from working in the UK last year following a misconduct hearing.

He had removed too much skin and tissue from the woman during a tumour removal procedure in 2009.

A review hearing of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service heard Dr Mohammed remained unrepentant.

It decided Mohammed - who now works as a surgeon at a private hospital in Saudi Arabia - was still not fit to return to work in the UK.
